Reculver / GPS 12’ 0”E Candle by Haeckels
Ingredients were picked on 23rd July 2014, sunny day.
This soy wax candle evokes the scent of waves crashing into the Reculver sea defences, the overgrown plants and fruits of the ruined Abbey and graveyard below. Salt water, berries, flowers and wild parsley.
Burn time: approx 40 hours
Notes: Top: fruity, green and delicate
Heart: light, floral with slight incense
Base: sweet and warm
Packaging: Mycelium is the root system of mushrooms (fungi) and is usually found underground. Within the packaging, the Mycelium intertwines with agricultural waste such as sawdust, flax and hemp husks and are left to grow into a mould for a period of time. After use, it can be reused, composted or planted in your garden to improve soil quality.
Seed Paper: The seed paper is made from recycled paper pulp mixed with wild flower seeds. For the green-fingered, place the paper on top of a pot of compost and water well.
For the first time that you burn your Haeckels candle, allow it to burn for at least two hours, or until the whole top is liquid with wax. This allows for an even burn the next time it is used.
